Most Helpful Guy
Trying to remain "friends" with an ex is almost always a mistake (unless you have a child together.) Remaining "friends" is a way for one to let the other own slowly while the other one is clinging to the hope that the relationship will be repaired and resumed. . . and that rarely works. Staying "friends" just prolongs the inevitable.
